"A person with a higher basal metabolic rate can eat 300 calories extra without gaining weight. "But if your metabolism is slow your body takes much longer to burn those calories.

Another problem that occurs when you make diets that are not made by specialists and directed for you, is that by decreasing the intake of calories the basal energy expenditure decreases while increasing the concentration of orexigenic hormones involved in increasing the intake, and those of satiety are reduced.
